    Me and two friends went to dig relics in a farm field in redwood ms near vicksburg once after heavy rains. The farmer had this huge field draining right across the middle. We needed to get to the back and this area had eroded deep and wide so we walked along side this ditch trying to find a spot we could cross without getting wet as it was very cold that morning. We found a spot that we knew was narrow enough to jump so after discussing it i went first. No problem. Then bill no problem. Michael was the tallest by six inches with very long legs so i knew it should be easiest for him. I got tired of coaching him and threatened to let him hunt that side of the ditch which had never produced anything. He backs up about fifteen or twenty ft and launches into a full run and right before he reaches the edge he changes his mind and puts on the brakes. It did not help as his feet started sliding and to a stop right at the edge but unbalanced just has to do this kind of hop right into the middle of this hole thinking it not very deep. Me and bill realized quickly that it was some kind of washout hole when michael completely disappears with only his hat floating for a second or two. He surfaces in a panic and there is his whites 6000 di pro behind him bobbing upside down like a big cork. He has never lived it down. His machine did survive after sitting for a few days to dry out. We rounded up limbs from trees and built him a fire to dry off.

    I'm a nuisance wildlife control specialist. A few years ago, I was called to a house that had squirrels in the attic. Upon meeting the owner, we walked around the house to find entry points. I casually asked him how long he had been collecting gold coins. The man's attitude changed drastically, like he had just been assaulted. "HOW DID YOU KNOW I COLLECT COINS?" Well, I just smiled and tapped the side of my head, like I have ESP or something. He repeated it, in a slow, stern volume, with no humor in his voice at all.
    I was just being observant. He had his garage open, and sitting there leaning against a wall was a poster with gold coins on it. It got my attention right away and just made sense that he was a collector. I explained I also collected coins and metal detected. Didn't mean to worry him. He just said "wow, I'll have to move that". I'm sure he thought I was going to rob him.

    Just a short one and fortunately, no one saw. But, recently I was in the middle of a farmfield, I'd forgotten to take my field shovel with me cuz I don't usually use one. But, of course, I got a hit that was just too tough to get with my hand tool. So, I left all my stuff there and walked all the way back to my car to get the shovel.

    When I tried to find the hole again, I couldn't find it!! The uneven ground wouldn't even let me see my stuff!! I walked around for about 15 minutes! I couldn't believe I'd lost all my equipment so I just figured somebody must've been watching me and seized on the opportunity for some free equipment!

    That's when I recalled that, this morning, I'd decided to try the field across the fence! Up to that day I ALWAYS went into the east field. Sucks gettin' old!

    When I finally got back to them, my detector and pinpointer were rolling on the ground roaring with laughter!

    Sort of reminds me of a particular "break" time I had a while ago. After a particularly free battle with Montezuma, I had pretty much gotten over the worst and went for a walk, (near by, of course! ). While I'm "going" along, here comes Mz Bizybody. I've had "run ins" with this particular lady before and I was NOT in the greatest of moods! Usually, I deal with her pretty politely, considering. This time, because I chose to just play the deaf/headset ploy. She got in my path and in my face. Going to have her words!

    Anyway, I stopped, apologized for not "hearing" her approach and let her start her tongue lashing and finger waving. (she IS pretty old )
    About 5 minutes of being kind, a need came to mind. Checking with the boys in the "boiler room", I found that this was just a pressure relief valve needing to vent. Usually, I might would just "turn the other cheek". This time, I leveled my aim and let fly. Not once, not twice, not three times....but until all internal pressure systems checked ok.

    Gotta say, she must've had a pretty strong intestinal fortitude, bless her poor ole heart.

    She lasted thru about 5 such ventings.

    I waved to her back and continued my "run".

    I was detecting a friends house when it started raining. I just found a mint condition 1920 mercury dime and was very excited. I ran to my car to put the coin in there and to dry off. When I got out I locked my car. A few minutes later, I felt my pockets and my keys were gone. It turns out I locked them in my car, and didn't have a spare. My friend whose house I checked wasn't going to be home for another 5 hours, and it was still raining. My detecting buddy called me about 30 minutes later to ask me if I found anything, and I told him the situation. He drove to my friends house and gave me a lift home and back for the keys. I am thankful for such a good detecting buddy, and we both had a good laugh about my stupid mistake when it was all over.

    Another time I was detecting an old home site which was producing many finds from the mid 1800s to mid 1900s when I got a gold signal down about 6 inches. I dug down and saw a gold disk in the hole! I was on cloud 9 and wiped the dirt off the coin. I called my brother over, and was hyperventilating because I was so excited. My brother quickly took the coin from me and cleaned it up good. He gave me a dirty look and said "you idiot, this is a readers digest token."Click image for larger version.
